You won't need to do anything to the browser

just open real player & file/tools/preferences/ scroll down to content..media types and tick anything you want real player to be the default player for, then when your browser finds a media of that type it will auomagically open Real player.

Most people want to find some way of STOPPING real player snatching all file types, you are unusual in wanting the reverse
